The story is about a young man has a gift, his gift gets him praises. He uses his gift to get into the porn industry in the 70's. This is the story of him and his gift. When I finished watching this movie I didn't know what to think of it. but for a while I came with the words to say about this movie and that it amazing. this movie has a big cast and all of the actors did a outstanding Job in they roles.

Although this isn't my favorite PT Anderson film, or his deepest thematically, it's still an interesting portrayal of the hedonistic 70's. The era is recreated in detail and, although some of the content is somewhat dark and uncomfortable, there are some illuminating performances, particularly from Anderson staple John C. Reilly.

A stylish piece that easily juggles multiple characters with a respectable treatment of the subject matter. It becomes increasingly dramatic, while still providing subtle black humor throughout

This is another movie I can watch over and over again. It has a great cast and many wonderful scenes. My two favorite scenes are - When Dirk (Mark Wahlberg), Reed and Todd are in the drug dealer's house - There are firecrackers going off, Alfred Molina being crazy and some serious 80's music going on in the background. It was a drug deal that went bad, but funny as hell. My other favorite scene is when Dirk is recording a song in the studio and he just sings awful..so awful it is funny. And you must see the last scene to see how "gifted" Dirk really is.

Boogie Nights review

"This is a fine life you've made for yourself." After viewing this again, I never realized how funny (in the first half before the characters tumble downwards to mediocrity) and brilliant this picture was. Great character development and interesting from beginning to end. Shows the acting ranges of Julianne Moore, Philip Seymoure Hoffman and Mark Wahlberg. Has a killer soundtrack and spectacular direction. "If you wanted to, you can do anything." by Maggie ("Amber Waves"), "Are you my mom?" by Rollergirl and We've all done bad things." by Eddie Adams. So many topics touched based on each other such as individuality/dreams/family from Buck Swope (Don Cheadle), a man whose infidelities of his wife he can't take anymore shown by "Little" Bill (William H. Macy), a cocaine addict mother ...

"Boogie Nights" by Yojimbo

Boogie Nights charts the rise and fall of a fresh-faced young bus boy with a "gift" who is discovered by an adult film maker in the 70s. P. T. Anderson's comic valentine to 70s porn obviously has a similar format to the likes of Goodfellas, but its much lighter tone leaves room for a lot of laughs as well as the inevitable drug-fuelled downward spiral to degradation. Initially, it's all outrageous fashions, parties, pretty girls and fast cars, and the naivety of these times is brought through really well; the extended family is like an "adult" Brady Bunch, and Wahlberg's innocent charm is infectious as they are little more than children playing at dress-up. While screwing, of course. There is also a lot of Spinal Tap in the mock documentary and Dirk's hilarious attempt at pop stardom, and...
